Pay when training + being in the fleet

I have the actual booklet from the RN AFCO, i thought you got payed a basic wage while training?

Also i was looking at certain jobs, as a warfare specialist you would get payed 13-16k, this is also the same for engineer jobs, surely engineer like jobs would be at a higher pay?

Is the 13-16k just when you start of as a leading hand? if so how much does it increase as you work up the ranks ?

Just a couple questions i was wondering about.

Erm, you don't start off as a Leading Hand.

Some people manage a whole career without ever even achieving the rate of confirmed Leading Hand. But they're fat losers.

Starting pay, for all branches, after all deductions (Income Tax, National insurance, Food, Accommodation, Council Tax) is about £840 (ish) per month during the first six months. £14, 145 Gross per annum

Pay rises after 6 months to £17,265, and increases incrementally at today's rates on the anniversary of this increase, as follows: £'s 17,736, 18,207, 19,779, 20,832, 21,442, eventually reaching 24,230 after 9 years if you are not promoted before then.

If promoted to Leading Head/Hand/Knees and Toes (Knees and toes, knees and toes) you slide onto the next higher rate on the incremental scales for that rate, which are £26,405 rising to £33,182 over 7 incremental rises, depending on branch.

You also get an annual 'cost of living' pay rise and the incremental scales are also revised annually by the Armed Forces Pay Review Body who issue this " reet rivettin' read": http://www.official-documents.gov.uk/document/cm82/8299/8299.pdf

Another thrilling read is the Joint Service Publication (JSP) number 752, not to be confused with PC McGarry number 452, which covers additional allowances. JSP 752 can be downloaded on the RAF website.

**** me 33k as a leading hand!!
I think I was only about that level when they let me go in 2000 as a CPOMEA !
What does a chief tiff make nowadays?

RR,A CPOMEA (or CPOET to give him his modern title) at level 7 is on around 41K, not the huge amount you'd think compared to a JR's wage.

I will hopefully be in next year as a diver and i'm sure i read on here that there is extra pay when you qualify from diver training, is this right and how long does it take?

Nice seeing the pay rates for Jolly Jack Tar, but going back to the originals question, I had not realised that we still had a Fleet!

In the 90's I recall that it was renamed "Flotilla". Nice to see it back as a "Fleet". But where is\are this large number of ships that constitute this "fleet" ....?

Interesting read the pay document... Couldn't get my head around most of it though.

I've applied as a ET ME(SM) should I assume that if I qualify as a Submariner that the SP that I would get would be at the bottom end of the scale or is it dependant on your job on the Submarine rather than the amount of experience you have?
